Great stay for the price and flexibility!

  • 5 of 5

Compared to just about any other property in South Haven, this place is a great value. It's an older home and has some issues, but it's well worth the price and the location to the private beach is perfect!

Rustic, but clean and good location.

  • 4 of 5

In a quiet neighborhood close to 1st Street Beach. (You can walk there in about 5 minutes!) Easy drive to North Beach and downtown shopping and restaurants. Rick, the owner, is very nice and accommodating. The house itself is quite old and the furniture is dated, but we were comfortable. Large yard with bocce ball court and swing set. The large bedroom needs newer dresser as the drawers would not open easily. Nice place for the $$.

Honest, Charming, and Simple - Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The charming yellow cottage is a no frills, older, but simply equipped with the necessities, cottage in a great location close to the beach. Perfect for a family of 4 with kids. A quick car-ride from downtown and a beautiful 3 mile walk to a coffee house. Deck in backyard was a bonus for our dog to this pet-friendly location. Rick and Linda are very accommodating and are wonderful people to rent from. Excellent vacation and made great memories in Southaven!

Older place but good value

  • 4 of 5

As everyone else has mentioned, this is an older place that has the basic amenities, so if you go in with that expectation, it's fine. Finding a place to rent in South Haven is already difficult, but finding one that is affordable, walking distance to the beach and pet friendly is nearly impossible. The location of this place is excellent; close to town as well as the highway if you want to explore other towns nearby (Saugatuck, Holland, etc.). Also note that this place is a duplex with the owners living in the adjacent quarters. It didn't bother us at all, but wanted to make that note.

My wife, baby daughter, dog and I stayed here and it met our needs fine. When we first arrived, there were ants and spiders in a few spots, but we cleaned them up and weren't bothered the rest of the time. Bathroom is fully functional and comes with plenty of towels. Kitchen contains the basics (Stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, plates/cups/utensils), so if you're planning on cooking an elaborate meal, consider bringing some of your own cooking supplies. Living room has a couch and chair with TV that are older, but again was expected. Wifi worked great. Bedrooms came with plenty of linens and pillows and had air conditioning units. The deck had a nice table and chairs and came with a grill. There's also a big backyard for animals/kids to play in.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. We were given a tour and explanation of everything upon arrival, and then didn't see them much during our short stay. Even though they were next door, we didn't feel like we were being watched and were left to enjoy our getaway.

If my family comes back to South Haven someday, we would definitely consider this place again.

Run down

  • 2 of 5

This place was a dump. Ants and spiders, everywhere. Basic kitchen supplies typically include salt. Plastic drinking cups are for children. Floors uneven, doors wouldn't close, faucets wiggly, felt as if the floors would give out under your feet.

Rick was pleasant and helpful, but the place is by far the worst lodging we've ever stayed out in South Haven.

Owner's Response: She is right about a number of things- the vanity faucet was loose and we fixed it. we provided salt and pepper, no one has ever mentioned it before, fixed the one door that did not clip tight... It is an older cottage and floors :roll", but they are as solid as a rock, you could drive a tractor on those floors, the 8x8 beams used for the floor settled in a couple of places, and it creates a coupel of ups and downs the place is clean and reasonable, has wifi deck and much more(pet friendly) and of the 10 tenants we have this summer, 5 are returns it is good experience for the money and we already have some people interested in next summer. rick

Absolutely love South Haven! Property is located very convenient walk to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The location was great and the price VERY affordable. The property is older and was in need of some updating during my family stay, but the property owner pointed that out and made it known ahead of time.

It's perfect for a small family of 4 looking for an affordable week in South Haven. Compared to most properties with the same location, the price for this stay is unmatched. However, it is a fair price for the condition of the older property so be prepared for more of a campy/cabin style vacation. Eat out locally or bring everything you will need to prepare food. The kitchen is limited but functional enough for the basics.
